“Each year, the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on the 21st September. The General Assembly of the United Nations has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples.” (www.un.org/en/events/peaceday/)
In an ever more divided society, where inhumane conflicts and crises are unfolding before our eyes, we may feel powerless. But… could power be found by exploring what it means to be “HUMAN”? Could this understanding help strengthen the unity of vision and action of our fractured society?
“HUMAN is a collection of stories, offering a reflection on what it means to be human. Through these stories full of love and happiness, as well as hatred and violence, HUMAN brings us face to face with the other, making us reflect on our lives. From stories of everyday experiences to accounts of the most unbelievable lives, these poignant encounters share a rare sincerity and underline who we are – our darker side, but also what is most noble in us and what is universal.
HUMAN is a politically engaged work which allows us to embrace the human condition and to reflect on the meaning of our existence.”
